What does 'Fight' mean?

Find out what Fight means. Fight is explained by Ron Alexander - author of Don't Tell Me What To Do: A Spiritual Memoir

Fight

Before I can make sense of what is happening, before I can react, he cracks me over the head with the bottle. The bottle shatters. I’m dazed by the blow to the head. When he tries to go through my pockets, I punch him in the gut, knocking him back. The girl screams and jumps on him. I manage to get up off the bed, and help her to fight the guy off. Together, we are able to fight the guy back out the door into the hallway.

We run back into her room, pushing a huge dresser up against the door. Blood is trickling down onto my face into my eyes from a gash in my head. I wipe the blood from eyes with a sleeve of my shirt. I’m numb to the pain I should be feeling from being hit so hard. All I could think about was the bag of crack in my pocket.
